Title IX Information

Sexual harassment shall be deemed a form of discrimination based on sex as prohibited by section 703 of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, and North Carolina

General Statute 126-16 (in the case of employees) and Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1973 (in case of students).

“Sexual harassment is unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature and can include unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal, nonverbal, or physical conduct of a sexual nature. Sexual harassment of a student can deny or limit, on the basis of sex, the student’s ability to participate in or to receive benefits, services, or opportunities in the school’s program. Sexual harassment of students is, therefore, a form of sexual discrimination prohibited by Title IX.”  - 2001 OCR Guidance (adopted 1/19/01)
